KARACHI: Pakistan will organise a single-country exhibition in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in September 2018 under the umbrella of Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) to showcase its products.
The decision was taken in a meeting between Pakistan Ambassador to UAE Moazzam Ahmed and FPCCI Vice President Waheed Ahmed in the presence of Pakistan Overseas Foundation Executive Council member Dr Muhammad Farhan.
A delegation of Pakistanis based in the UAE as well as investors will also visit Pakistan under the auspices of the Pakistan Overseas Foundation so that trade and investment between the two countries can be further enhanced.

“UAE is a big market for Pakistani fruits, vegetables, meat and poultry products as well as other foodstuff and these products can be re-exported via Dubai to other Gulf countries through land routes,” a press release quoted the ambassador as saying.
A ban imposed by the UAE on import of poultry products from Pakistan had also been withdrawn, which would provide further opportunities to enhance exports, the ambassador added.
